String of burglaries hit local pawn shop again

LOGAN — A local pawn shop was again one-of-three burglaries that police are now investigating.

Logan City Police Chief Gary Jensen said Fast Cache Pawn, Center Street Grill and Wilson Elementary school were all burglarized early Saturday morning.

Police first responded to an intrusion alarm, triggered at Fast Cache Pawn around 2:30 a.m. When they arrived at 527 South Main they found broken glass and an open door. Jensen said three firearms and possibly some jewelry were stolen.

An hour-and-a-half later police received a report of a break-in at Wilson Elementary School, 89 South 500 East. Jensen said officers found someone had forced entry into the school and vandalized some of the property.

The third burglary occurred at Center Street Grill, 18 East Center Street. Officers found a window broken out, giving someone entry into the restaurant. Jensen said an undisclosed amount of cash was found stolen.

Police have no suspects in the burglaries but are following up on several leads. Jensen said there is nothing to suggest the burglaries are related, but since they all happened around the same time, it is something they are looking at.

Because three firearms were stolen from Fast Cache Pawn the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) will likely assist Logan City Police in the investigation. “They have investigative knowledge and resources that can really benefit us,” said Jensen.

This is the second time Fast Cache Pawn has been burglarized recently. In February two men broke into the store and stole several firearms. They were later identified as 27-year-old Cody Naser of Providence and 24-year-old Tyler Jenson of Hyde Park. Both were arrested in May and are facing multiple felony charges.
